Desde que era una niña, Emma Grant ha sido una romántica empedernida. Así que no es de extrañar que haya hecho de su vocación el encargarse de todos los arreglos flores que una boda conlleva. Cada día, se pone manos a la obra con sus flores y tiene como compañeras a sus tres mejores amigas. Desde luego, no podría tener un trabajo mejor.
En apariencia, la vida amorosa de Emma va viento en popa. Esbelta y seductora, cada vez que entra en una habitación la llena de color, tal y como hacen sus arreglos. Pero, aunque no le faltan hombres a su alrededor, todavía no ha encontrado a Mister Perfecto. Y el último lugar donde espera encontrárselo es debajo de sus narices.

Emmaline and her three friends own a wedding planning business and Emma is in charge of the flowers. Fun, cute idea and I did think this second in the series had less of the annoying acronyms (MOB – mother of the bride, etc.) that clogged up the first but don't worry, they still pop up. Jack came into their friend circle through one of the women's older brothers and ever since college has been one of the gang.
Emma and Jack have peripherally found each other sexy over the years but neither wanted to mess with the friend dynamics, until they decide to.

I don't really have much to say to about this one because it bored me for the vast majority, I couldn't feel Emma and Jack's chemistry at all. Emma is a “marrying” kind of gal and Jack is a “good time” boy. Emma thinks she can just sleep with Jack and not feel anything and Jack is trying to delude himself into thinking their relationship isn't getting more serious. Great trope-y plot but the feelings weren't there for me.

What I'm going to remember the most from this is towards the end, Emma has a total and complete blow-up that made her seem like a psycho. She learns Jack's had a hard day so she decides to cook him dinner at his house, has to get his keys from his assistant, and is on a mission to finally tell him she loves him. Jack shows up shocked/surprised to see her at his house, has a pounding headache, and wants a shower. Emma doesn't like how he's reacting, he's a little standoffish but remember headache and not expecting her, and when I say she loses her shit, you all can't even imagine the level of wtf she starts spouting at him. She ends up breaking up with him and storming out and Jack barely knows what happened. It was such an over-the-top third act break-up, I'm almost in awe.

Anyway, apologies are made and kisses. The real reason I decided to put any thoughts down on this was because I wanted to quote this scene, pretty much the only highlight for me in this boring, wtf Emma, story:
“I asked you once before, and you didn’t answer. I’ll ask you again. Yes or no this time. Are you in love with her?”
“Okay.” He took a long drink of beer. “Yes. I guess it took an ass-kicking to shake it out of me, but yes. I’m in love with her. But—”
“Do you want to fix it?”
“I just said I was in love with her. Why wouldn’t I want to fix it?”
“You want to know how?”
“Goddamn it, Del.” He drank again. “Yes, since you’re so fucking smart. How do I fix it?”
“Crawl.”


I'm not sure Jack is the one who needed to crawl, not alone anyway but I loved the hit of that last word, crawl. ( )

Emma Grant and Jack Cooke have been friends for years, but when they finally decide to date one another, it's with the understanding that they can't allow what happens in their relationship to dissolve their friendship. Even though Emma recognizes that Jack has problems with commitment, her romantic nature gets the best of her, and it isn't long before she realizes that their differing needs may destroy more than just their friendship.

Bed of Roses is definitely a comfort read. The pace continuously keeps the story moving, but at a relaxing tempo that allows the reader to enjoy the descriptions of all of the lovely flowers used in many ways throughout the book. The deliberate build up of the relationship between Emma and Jack gives the impression of really following this couple as they navigate the ins and outs of a romance as it develops between these long-time friends. Although Emma seems to overreact toward the end of the story, overall Bed of Roses is another good entry in the Bride Quartet. ( )

Firstly, I only read this book because my sister had it and I wanted to do some light reading. Not a very good read for non-fans of Nora Roberts. The book is too predictable. You could even predict what is going to happen in the next books in the series by reading this. And the story line is very typical and non entertaining. ( )

Though there are few surprises in this cute courtship, those with a TiVo full of Bridezillas should enjoy it, thanks largely to Roberts's effortless wit.
